"He's a snake in the grass, I tell ya guys; he may look dumb but that's just a disguise; he's a mastermind in the ways of espionage." Charlie Daniels, "Uneasy Rider" Roy Spencer and his Christian "EcoFreako" rock band mock Al Gore's fever - TT's Lost in Tokyo

Roy Spencer and his Christian "EcoFreako" rock band mock Al Gore's fever

Further to my post on Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, Dr. Roy Spencer, a prominent climate scientist/skeptic and lead guitarist in a contemporary Christian rock band at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Huntsville, Alabama, has kindly emailed me the link to two songs that his band has done, mocking Al Gore and climate change. 

And so, without further ado - since I don't mind a little mockin', here's Roy and the rockin' EcoFreako Commune with:

- "Earth Has A Fever"; and

- "I Want To Mock Al Gore All Night"


More on Roy here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/05/20/AR2006052001151.html.


But since one good turn deserves another, I'm sure the good doctor will not object to a little ribbing as well.  His conservative views reflect his upbringing and religious faith, which are evident in his praise for "Intelligent Design"http://www.tcsdaily.com/article.aspx?id=080805I.  Surely there is no reason to suspect that the same religious faith and conservative views might leak into Dr. Spencer`s climate science -- which was persuasive enough to string along libertarian skeptics like Ron Bailey at Reason Magazine (editor of "Global Warming and Other Eco Myths How the Environmental Movement Uses False Science to Scare Us to Death") and others (such as libertarian law prof Jon Adler; Skeptic Mag's Mchael Schermer and Gregg Easterbrook) for quite some time -- until

-- until Dr. Spencer (and his side-kick IPCC member John Christy) was shown to be sufficiently wrong on atmospheric temperatures over two years ago that Ron Bailey and other libertarian pundits abandoned their public doubters positions and converted in droves, Bailey in posts such as "We're All Global Warmers Now; Reconciling temperature trends that are all over the place", http://www.reason.com/news/show/34079.html, "Betting on Climate Change It's time to put up or shut up", http://www.reason.com/news/show/34976.html, "Global Warming Data Sets Reconciled", http://www.reason.com/blog/show/113722.html, and "Confessions of an Alleged ExxonMobil Whore; Actually no one paid me to be wrong about global warming", http://www.reason.com/news/show/36811.html.

But who cares about science, anyway?  Far more important (and healthier) for us to enjoy the righteous guitar licks he gets in while mocking and rockin Al Gore!

Drat, it seems the EcoFreako website has, er, melted away.

Roger, thanks for the news.  When I get back home I'll check to see if I downloaded those songs.
